Latest GDPR updates and resources


Friday 2nd February 2018

The Information Commissioner's Office has published more information and resources to help companies prepare for GDPR.

They are also working on some 'resources' which will help organisations' efforts to reach their customers and service users about changes brought about by GDPR.  It is not clear what these resources will be, but they are hoping to have them ready by the beginning of March - we will update you on these as they are published.

Other resources include:

  • The extremely useful Future Learn course - which we published last year and which they are now rerunning...
  • Marketing Week 'setting the scene' webinar -  If you register with Marketing Week you can watch the replay
  • Marketing Week webinar tackling the specific topic of legitimate interest 
  • ICO guidance on legitimate Interest
  • Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/GDPRforonlineentrepreneurs/ - It is being run by someone who used to work in Richard Branson's legal team.  It is aimed mainly at online businesses and entrepreneurs, but a lot of the principles apply to companies like ours, as they are small businesses and consultancies.  Suzanne posts a video every day, answers questions on the site and has templates and advice available to purchase
